VDI Wissensforum: USEWARE 14

Es ist zu einer unchristlichen Zeit. Am Freitag, den 28.11.14, habe ich die Ehre den zweiten Konferenztag der USEWARE 14 in Heilbronn zu eröffnen. Allerdings um 8:30 Uhr. Es wird aber bestimmt spannend genug, um müde Konferenzteilnehmer aufzuwecken. Das Thema ist “Kein Grund zur Freude mehr? Ein Plädoyer für die behutsame Gestaltung von Alltagsautomatisierung” und es geht – ganz passend zu dieser Zeit – um das Kaffeekochen.

DIS 2014

vancouver-mix

Just arrived in Vancouver to attend DIS Conference 2014 and I love it! Looking forward to the Workshop on Environments for creative interaction design processes tomorrow where I will present our research on the Interaction Vocabulary as a design tool. Another highlight will be the opening keynote by Peter-Paul Verbeek on Monday morning, really exciting!

Monday afternoon, 3:20pm, I will give a talk in the session ‘Hedonic’ and present a review on 15 years research about the concept of hedonic quality in HCI – its history, contributions, and future research directions.

Tuesday afternoon, I will be chairing the session on ‘Social Data’ – just read the papers and looking forward to meet the authors in person. I have a million questions, be prepared 😉

And then the (hedonic) gratification: the Banquet Dinner held at Science World on Tuesday night.

Data Ecologies 2014

1405_08_DE14_Postcard_Landscape

Meet Eva on Data Ecologies symposium in Linz!

Any positive experience involves the fulfillment of psychological needs, such as the need for competence or relatedness. In many cases, needs are fulfilled through activities, “enactments of daily life”, in which things play a crucial role. This creates an interesting opportunity for design. It may harness its ability to shape physical artefacts, but not to make them more beautiful, useful, or robust, but to create and mediate meaningful, positive experiences. Such an “experience-centered design” requires a thorough understanding of the psychology of positive experiences and how they emerge as well as strategies to design experiences and deliver them through the interaction with things. Especially when it comes to the design of the invisible, intangible (i.e., the experience), new conceptual tools and approaches to help designers are needed. In addition, interaction with a thing becomes crucial, as long as it is key in shaping practices. But what is an aesthetic interaction and how do design it?
